On Thursday 17 December, Downend library is holding a coffee morning with seasonal music from mandolin player John Hopes.
John is a founder member and musical director of Fingers and Frets, a banjo, mandolin and guitar orchestra based in Bristol. John will be serving up some Christmas classics from the unique sound of the mandolin while library users can enjoy hot drinks and festive fare such as mince pies and panettone – an Italian Christmas bread.
The coffee morning fundraiser is held annually and this year will run from 10.30 to 11.30am with donations going to Help for Heroes, the charity formed to help Britain’s wounded service men and women.
Helen Egarr of Downend library said: “Everyone is welcome to come down to the library and enjoy some seasonal music at our Christmas Coffee Morning – traditional tunes with an Italian twist all in aid of Help for Heroes.”
